Most of us know these things already. It is being uploaded in this section for posterity & to refresh the memories of those who were touched by the events.
Post Jubilee Euphoria & Camaraderie
Right after the 30 April 2005 event, the euphoria & camaraderie spilled over to other places:
At the UP Diliman Campus:
A week after the Golden Jubilee, about 70 55'ers held a party at the UP ISSI in UP Diliman for the balik-bayans who were still around. Among the balik-bayans who attended the party are: Norming David, Zeny Borja, Ely (a former Association President) & Nenita Bondoc, Art Basa, Mely Supan, Olive Perez, Ruben Pineda & Justice Magat (see various photos below).
Amelia Bautista Swenson et. al. visited UP Diliman
About two weeks after the Golden Jubilee celebration, Amelia Bautista, Pat Binuya, Philip Tuazon, Aquilao Cortez & Tony Pineda visited UP Diliman. The group was treated to lunch by Esto Pineda. Shown below is the group and host at the office of the Vice Chancellor of UP Diliman.
Subsequently, Sylvia Sarmiento Aragon hosted a gathering of 55'ers in their residence in Imus, Cavite. Photos are in our Golden Anniversary photo album.
